Yacine is a great guy I have enjoyed my stay at his room.
He came to pick me up from the Pyrenees metro station which is just a 5 min walk from his place. The room though is quite small but clean and tidy. The sofa bed offered to me was very comfortable and I had good night sleep.
The breakfast that Yacine prepared for me was tasty and mouthful. I stayed there for three nights and had different breakfast each morning.
Yacine is well conversant in French, English and Arabic, he can also understand Urdu/Hindi. I had no difficutly talking to him in English.
I am looking forward for my future stay in Paris with him.
Yacine good guy and a good cook. Many things can tell. It is true his apartment seems to me too small for 2 people.
I stayed in Paris with Yacine for several weeks and it was a wonderful experience. Throughout my stay Yacine proved very accommodating, always there to provide guidance and insight in terms of navigating the city and getting the most out of my time in Paris. Not only that, he is a very talented chef! I would definitely recommend Yacine to all those looking for a memorable experience in Paris.
Yacine was very nice and helpful. I stayed with him my second day in Paris. He fed me breakfast and diner each day. He said there was a curfew at midnight but we ended up talking until 2am. He gave me his bed while he slept on a mat on the floor. He helped me find and buy a train ticket to ticket to the south of France. The apartment is quite small, and not in the best shape, but I feel the Yacine made up for that.
yacine, was very nice people doesn't speak English as well as he said. I found myself having to repeat things The place is very small. if you are from Europe then this is the place for you
I stayed at Yacine's place for 4 days, and I thought it was brilliant. Yacine is a very pleasant host and speaks excellent English. The apartment is tidy and comfortable, though a bit old and cramped. Friendly neighbours, very nice non-touristy neighbourhood, Metro is close on one of the less busy/touristy lines. Space is shared with the host (no privacy), though, and as other reviewers have mentioned, shower and WC are perhaps a little unconventional, but of it as a plus point--it made my stay in Paris all the more memorable.
The price is very convenient to stay in Paris, very good neighborhood and close to the metro station. There are cheap shops and restaurants nearby because is not a touristic area.
Regarding the apartment (studio), you should be prepared for a very small place, not the most comfortable. You share the same place with the host. The improvised shower is in the same place, and the WC is outside.
The WC is not the conventional WC, but those with a hole in the floor. That's why during my stay I tried to go to restrooms outside during the day.
The host is very nice and friendly person, willing to give you tips and suggestions.
A place recommended for people looking for a convenient place, that are traveling with little budget and do not worry very much about privacy and comfort.
Paris is an incredible city. Yacine was extremely helpful when trying to figure out places to go and things to see. While the room is small, it is clean and tidy, and you have a decent view of the city. The bathroom caught me off guard, but I got used to it. Overall, a great trip.
Yacine is a great guy.
I enjoyed my stay.
I recommend this place! Though small the host goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. His English is great. The location convenient. So overall I doubt you'll find a better way to rest and share your explorations of Paris.
